What if XSS was a browser bug?
Frederik Braun

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) is still the most common security issue on the web - with no easy way to be prevented. The talk will provide the necessary background on XSS and where previous approaches failed. Then we will present the Sanitizer API, a new and upcoming browser API that solves this issue.
